February 20th, 2012

A few weeks ago, Mom and Caleb went to the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin to look at trains. I wish I could have gone with, but these pictures almost make up for it!

This time we are going to show pictures of the trains that are in a huge building. These are the trains that they’ve cleaned the outsides. There actually were a few of them that you could go inside and look too!

This is the Dwight D. Eisenhower, a steam locomotive that General Eisenhower used to travel around Great Britain and Europe during World War II.

This is the Union Pacific Big Boy. It is the longest steam train ever made. It is 134 feet (41 meters) long and weighs 1.25 million pounds (0.6 million kilograms).

This is a Pennsylvania Railroad CG1. It is an electric train!

That is how it connected to the power lines above the rail lines.

Next time, we’ll show you pictures of the trains that were left outside in a covered shed.
